The Boehner Lawsuit Against
Obama Is Beginning to Take Shape

National Journal, by Billy House

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/9/2014 4:19:42 AM

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

FTA " "If Congress were to do its job and pass the legislation I´ve [obama] directed them to pass, I wouldn´t be forced to take matters into my own hands.""

Every 10 year old kid knows that Congress doesn´t report to the President. The guy is definitely tyrannical.

Thanks , Boner. Watch how fast the MSM morphs ´lawsuit´ into ´impeachment´ as we head into the fall elections. This couldn´t ´languish´ for a while like nearly all legal cases?

Dittos, #3. Put this in the same basket as all those bills to repeal Obamacare. Just bones to mollify the base.

It will go nowhere.

Impeach - now.
Reid kills it.
Campaign on it.
Win a mandate in NOvember.
Re-impeach in January.
Put pressure on Senate Dems in February.

IMO, that´s our only real chance. The Emperor is consolidating his power.

2016 election? What 2016 election? Third term? It could happen if we continue to wring our hands and do nothing effective.

Congress has been working on this lawsuit trying to get it right, doing their best before taking it to Court. At least they are doing something, which is what we´re all screaming they should do.

"If congressional standing is denied in such cases, there will be no other way to check such presidential usurpation short of impeachment," the two write.

So if the lawsuit fails on the grounds that there´s no "standing" in the Courts, they can proceed with impeachment, which they will do.

They are being careful and judicious. They don´t want charges of recklessness being hurled at them. They really are trying so I think they deserve some credit. Going directly to impeachment with no interim accusations isn´t wise.

During the lawsuit´s Court presentation, American media will cover all the excesses of this POTUS and the outright breaking of our laws. Average Americans, not just the Court, will be able to see his lawlessness.

As for Obama´s comment:

"If Congress were to do its job and pass the legislation I´ve directed them to pass, I wouldn´t be forced to take matters into my own hands."

Our "Constitutional lawyer in the Oval Office" reveals that he doesn´t even know how our government works. The POTUS doesn´t "direct" Congress to do anything. The POTUS proposes action to the Congress. It´s Congress´ job to "pass legislation", not POTUS´ job.

OPEN LETTER TO "THE CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER IN THE OVAL OFFICE": That´s not how America works. Ever hear the term, "The President proposes, Congress disposes"? You are not a dictator, dude.

In addition, this process will provide a logical step toward stating all of his impeachable actions. Hopefully this provide proof to the electorate leading up to the midterms that the Dem´s are complicit in this debacle. If these proceeding provide the impetus to win back a majority in the Senate as well as maintain a majority in the House then impeachment could become a reality. Also by that time I believe that there will enough remaining Dem´s that are afraid of voter backlash that will also go along.

This could get interesting. By the time the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group gets done with its legal analysis and drafting, I wonder if the document it produces will have "Articles of Impeachment" written across the top of it. That is, after all, the proper way for the House of Representatives to present its charges against a President. Sneaky.

# 13...thanks.

Some of you folks go are going back to thrashing the House...our team.

Of course, they mistakes but impeaching Obama isn´t one of them. If Obama prayed, his first prayer would be that the House impeach him. If you don´t understand why at this late date...you need to make the effort...read the Constitution. This lawsuit is the way to go. It well get the issues in front of the voters before the election. Our biggest risk in both of these scenarios is the msm but far less with the lawsuit plus it won´t be bogged down for months with the msm slaying us daily...in a no win situation.

#17 you are correct. As much as I want to see this man in Leavenworth, law suit right now is the way to go. Dems have the senate, so impeachment won´t go anywhere but 24/7 on the MSM. Besides, I think he is trying very hard to get impeached before the November elections. He is also pushing the border situation to instigate a confrontation with "we the people" so he can declare martial law and cancel the elections. The law suit should also include treason for allowing a foreign invasion into the country.

Oh boy, the Republicans will be beat over the head by the democrats with taking on this issue while children on the border are being neglected and left to languish by those mean ol´ Republicans. It will be said that Republicans have a vendetta against the president and they are more concerned with harming him than they are helping those poor innocent children. Obama´s timing of the border crisis could not have been more opportune for him. You´d almost believe he planned it that way. Republicans need to go on the offense before the democrats put them on the defense. Get effective talking points prepared for both issues or suffer the consequences.

Dittos to #1 & #2 - you beat me to those same responses, and #13 is the voice of reason-excellent post.

The article caused me to have an OMG moment - I feel like I´m watching Shakepeare´s play Julius Caesar. Could it be that Barry thinks he can get away with becoming an American Julius Caesar?

Obviously, our Congress members would never go to the lengths Caesar´s opponents went, but there are so many parallels to Caesar and to Barry´s idea of "ruling" that it is almost shocking - especially to those of us who believe in a Constitutional Republic.

The following shippets are from an analysis about the times of ole Julius and is by Arash Farzaneh. It is found at https://suite.io/arash-farzaneh/5ek62c7

1. "Julius Caesar´s rise to power was connected with disregard and even disrespect for rules, tradition and authority."

2. "Caesar continued to openly challenge his main opponent"(Congress?)... "When he crossed the Rubicon he was in direct defiance of Roman law, because as the governor of Gaul, he was not allowed to enter Rome, something the constitution forbid."(since when has that stopped Barry?)

3. "Caesar decided to give himself more power by diluting the powers and reaches of the senate."

4. "This period is known as the end of the Republic as Caesar took on the autocratic position of “perpetual dictator.” The position of “dictator” in those times was usually temporary and mainly during exceptional times of crisis, but Caesar used it to usurp absolute control." (Is this what is in store for the USA?)

5. "One of the flaws of Caesar was also his strongest trait, his ambition. He had however become overconfident and it made him complacent. He thought himself invincible both in battle and in Rome..."

Congress needs to get busy before Barry Caesar nullifies the Constitution.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life´s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

While I have little doubt this reflects Obama´s actual attitude towards the Constitution, NJ´s quote seems to originate from a satirical site: http://azconservative.org/2014/06/28/president-tries-to-fend-off-evidence-of-incompetence/

The NJ inadvertently makes the point that it´s hard to parody the current Administration and Democratic Party, but guys/gals, Obama gives us so much real stuff to work with, we don´t have to waste our credibility on the fake stuff.

Spot on are the references to Caesar and the final days of Rome. Even the liberal lapdogs who support this loud-mouthed buffoon are playing out the decadence and corruption that enabled the fall of Rome. However, if it comes to pass, there will be a Brutus. Barry has a collection of boot-lickers but their actions are not out of loyalty because they know that their spot under the bus is only moments away.

So let´s play this out: Boehner sues obozo and, wonder of wonders, the SCOTUS rules 9-0 that obozo has overstepped his powers......crickets....crickets....Why would anyone think this tyrant would change his behavior?? Who will make him? Not Holder. He has ignored the laws of this country every since he was coronated! The republicans are afraid to use their Constitutional power of the purse. They will never impeach this guy even if he defied the SCOTUS because they are more afraid of being called racist by the media than they are of losing our liberty on their watch. Folks, we are screwed: the dems are too corrupt to rule and the rebups, with the exception of a few like Cruz and Lee, are too stupid.

Impeachment is bandied about on talk radio ( Savage and Erickson ) and from Sarah Palin as if it means removal from office.
Impeachment for Obama and escaping a conviction
in the Senate would be like OJ being charged
and then found not guilty.
No serious person could imagine anywhere from 15 to 21 Senate Democrats voting to remove the first
black president from office.
Obama would emerge victorious and the Democrats
would be energized.
Just in time for 2016.
The celebrations would be nauseating because Obama had beaten the Republicans.
The media would be exultant and
Republicans would look like fools.
What exactly are the criminal charges and evidence the impeachment crowd thinks they could present ?
Do they think Eric Holder , Lois Lerner , Valerie Jarrett et. al are going to rat out the POTUS ???
The lawsuit is the only rational and logical way to remind the American people of
Obama´s reckless and lawless behavior .
Unfortunately , talk radio and the Tea Party
waste their time and energy blaming
elected Republicans for Obama´s actions.

This lawsuit is just slight of hand to distract us from demanding that Boehner do his job and stop the flow of money that enables the tyrant to inflict his tyranny!!!

Stop funding to the NSA division that is spying on Americans. Stop funding the IRS, EPA and other agencies that are persecuting conservatives who are perceived to be a risk to this administration. Stop funding to buy federal land on the southern border that prevents Texas from securing the border.

Should a lawsuit actually make it to the court, what consequences does Boehner expect from it?? It seems apparent that it is simply another of his delay tactics to avoid taking any action to stop the renegade in power. He should just be honest and simply say nothing as he does nothing. We all understand that his job is over his head or perhaps he is happy with being an appendage of the Democrat party. That is the way things are. So another solution to the devastation of America has to be found by the people. Boehner is irrelevant. Frankly, it would be nice if he would just go away.

#29 is speaking reality
Perhaps #31 wasn´t watching close when the Clinton impeachment was turned into a social circus leaving no recourse to bring the real charges and treason into the issue.
That issue was foreign campaign monies and the delivery of military superior equipment blueprints to China --a Communist gov.
In addition to bring the act of impeachment forward just before midterm will rally the democrat voters who give everything to the party based on their party generational bias.

Sorry for the additional post #35, but I really don´t trust impeachment either. I would rather the House sue Obama for overstepping his Constitutional authority, and having his Executive orders overturned by the Supremes.

It would be interesting though in an election year to see how many Senate Democrats would feel so threatened that they would vote to Impeach in the newly elected Senate. Especially if the Republicans regain the majority.

In the end, I don´t trust Boehner to do anything except to bluster.

Don´t all you people who are calling for impeachment understand that it cannot be done? Is it news to you that the Senate has to vote for impeachment? What is the point of beating a dead horse? The House is doing what it can. Two smart lawyers have shown them the way to prove "standing", the lack of which has gotten other lawsuits dismissed. Admittedly, they should have thought of it themselves.

The Senate does not vote for impeachment which is a charge of high crimes and misdemeanours. Impeachment is done solely by the House. After the impeachment the Senate votes to convict or not but the impeachment stands forever. It also provides a great opportunity to create formal documentation of all the crimes that were committed, and that is for all time. Impeachment is a great idea.

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne.

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only

Imagine if you downloaded something that ended up wiping out all the information you needed before meeting with an IRS agent asking about discrepancies on your tax return. How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary E. Christopher Abruzzo and a top aide resigned Thursday over revelations that they were among dozens of state officials who sent or received pornographic e-mails over state computers. In a letter to Gov. Corbett, Abruzzo said he had not been able to review the explicit messages he allegedly sent or received, but said he accepted responsibility for "any lack of judgment" he may have exhibited. He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy

7 Reasons Why the Oklahoma Beheading
Has Everything to Do with Islam

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam. The UK Daily Mail reported Tuesday that “while the

It all comes down to this: 11 years later, the front door was unlocked. When Oscar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence late last month, he should have been just another statistic. A mentally ill man who was doing what a handful of others do every year, get onto the White House lawn and find themselves tackled by guards or brought down by dogs or fired upon by snipers. But this time it was different. The President and first family weren´t home, the snipers didn´t shoot. It´s still not clear where the dogs were or why there was no Uniformed Division officer

HOUSTON, Texas -- A desperate Wendy Davis is now touting a heavily skewed poll that still shows her trailing by nearly ten points. With the margin of error in the poll being plus or minus 3.1 percent, she could be trailing in this discredited poll by as much as twelve points. After coming off two consecutive debate failures where Davis failed to even keep her composure and follow simple instructions from the moderator, Davis is now pushing a Texas Lyceum poll that shows her trailing Attorney General Greg Abbott’s campaign by 9 percentage points. The numbers in this poll are considered

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
